2018 Netball Europe Open Challenge

This is the third year running that our national team will participate in the Netball Europe Open Challenge tournament. Netball Europe has accepted two new members in the last year, the Isle of Man (previously part of England Netball) and the United Arab Emirates.

Israel Netball has faced both Gibraltar and the Republic of Ireland on numerous occasions but these two new teams are unknown quantities so they will present us with an even more exciting experience. Shan and Tal are working our team – a younger one than usual – hard and have high hopes of winning at least one international victory when they head out to Gibraltar for the competition that will take place on the 10-13 May!

It's going to be tough going with Israel playing three games in 24 hours (click here for the schedule).

Lots of luck to all our girls:

Youth Maccabiah 2018

In celebration of 70 years of Israel's independence, a Youth Maccabiah is being held in Haifa at the end of July. Israel Netball sees this as a great opportunity to encourage and develop our junior players and has accepted the invitation to send two teams of 14-16 year olds to the event. Nomi Komar will be responsible for training the Gush Etzion/Modi'in team and Keren Gordon the Ra'anana team.

Good luck to all!

Congrats England Netball!

Sincere congratulations from Israel Netball to England Netball, our Netball Europe colleagues, for their stunning win over Australia at the 2018 Commonwealth Games! We salute you!
